Wonderful long-time Big Sur establishment. Nepenthe Restaurant has good food, incredible views, and very relaxed atmosphere. The Phoenix Shop is full of interesting items from Big Sur and all over the world - books, jewelry, clothing, home items, body care, etc., etc.. A must stop in Big Sur.
Perfect for a quick roadside stop, day trip or overnight camping. Bathrooms, water, parking lot, redwoods, coastal trails. Very beautiful.
